Singer Juris on having a baby: 'We're just waiting'
112913-Juris_Main.jpgStar Records's platinum-selling and award-winning recording artist Juris has released in the Philippines her 19-track international album titled Dreaming of You, which recently topped the jazz chart of Singapore’s popular record bar label, HMV. “Unang una talaga siyang na-release sa ibang bansa with ten tracks and then nung dinala ko dito dinagdagan naming ng siyam kaya 19 tracks na po yan, songs that I recorded for teleseryes and movies. Kung ako tatanungin ano yung the best track dito, the best lahat! (laughs)” she shared during her presscon held last November 26 at Sir Boy's Food Republic in Quezon City.

The 35-year-old vocalist also shared she was happy to have recently celebrated her second year wedding anniversary (She got married in December 2011). She admitted she and her husband have already been planning to expand their family in 2014. “Okay naman kami, gusto naman namin siyempre pag dumating. Sana biyayaan kami na isa sa mga couples na magkakaroon ng anak. Ipag-pray niyo kami. Siyempre kasama yun ngayon na family na kami, feeling ni God ready na kami. We’re just waiting,” she said.

Juris revealed that even her colleagues in the business are supportive of her plans to have a baby. “Yung manager ko naman we talked about it, kumbaga nag-a-adjust yung schedule ko din talaga. Kumbaga hindi puwedeng hindi i-prioritize yung personal life right now kasama na rin dun yung you want to be healthy and huwag masyado magpuyat.”

Juris said that she and her husband Gavin Lim are patiently waiting to be blessed with their first child. She said there is no reason to feel impatient. “Hindi naman, okay lang. Siguro nung una kami  parang huwag muna, enjoyin muna natin. Pero more on bahala na lang kung anong mangyari. Part siya ng plan siyempre. Hindi naman, marami namang mga three, four, five years bago magkaanak. Kung para sa ‘yo, para sa ‘yo,” she said.

For the coming holidays, Juris said she and her hubby just want to enjoy the Christmas break with their loved ones. “Uuwi kami ng Davao sa family, pupunta kami sa parents ko and then balik kami dito to spend time with my in-laws,” she said.

The talented ASAP performer said that she still considers her husband as the best gift she has ever received. “Siguro nung kinasal kami ng asawa ko (laughs) kasi that was in December 2011 so masaya yung pasok ng pasko nung taon na yun at siyempre every year after,” she said.

Dreaming of You under Star Records is now available in record bars nationwide for only P350. The tracks can also be downloaded via iTunes, and For more Kapamilya updates, log on daily to and follow Push_Mina on Twitter.
